We’re not expecting a new flagship Galaxy phone until sometime later next month, just before MWC, but CES is here and Samsung has already jumped the gun on two new phones for you all to enjoy: the long-rumoured and much-leaked Galaxy S10 Lite and Note 10 Lite.
Both phones are designed to be budget-friendly versions of the flagship devices, though Samsung has yet to tell us exactly how much the phones are going to cost. Considering it already offers cheaper phones in the Galaxy A and J ranges, we probably shouldn’t expect them to be that cheap. Perhaps the low-end of premium pricing?
Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite Specs
The S10 Lite may be Lite, but it certainly isn’t small. It comes with a 6.7-inch AMOLED display with 1080p resolution, a hole punch camera with a 32MP sensor (in the middle, not on the right hand side), plus a triple-lens rear camera with a 48MP wide-angle lens (f/2.0), a 12MP Ultra wide-angle lens (f/2.2), and a 5MP macro lens (f/2.4).
The main lens also has something called Sper Steady OIS, which should make your videos nice and smooth without any of the juddering about you’d get without it.
The S10 Lite also comes powered by the Snapdragon 855 processor, has a 4,500 mAh battery, 128GB of internal storage, and a choice of 6GB or 8GB of RAM. It runs Android 10 out of the box, but there’s no word of a microSD card slot.
Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Lite Specs
Truth be told the Note 10 Lite is not that different. t also has a 6.7-inch Full HD AMOLED display, a 32MP hole-punch camera in the front, a 4,500 mAh battery, 128GB of storage, Android 10 out of the box, and a choice of 8 or 6GB of RAM.
The camera is different, though. It has a 12MP wide angle lens (f/1.7) with regular OIS, a 12MP ultra-wide angle lens (f/2.2), and a 12MP telephoto lens (f/2.4) that also has OIS. It also comes with an S-Pen, in typical Note style, and seems to be running with an Exynos chipset. Presumably, though, exact chipsets will vary by region as is normally the case with Samsung flagships.
It’ll be available in ‘Aura Glow’, Black, and Red.
No word on release dates yet, but both phones will be on display at CES next week and that means we shouldn’t have to wait much longer to find out when we can get one.
